I'm not much of a html designer, the table has border="1", what should I 
put for 'single' borders ?

How about 1 column for "Parser & Semantic analysis" and another for 
"Code generation"

I tried that but didn't make a difference wherever I put it 
(table,tr,td) (at least on firefox that is).

I'm not sure if providing a looong list of missing C++ features is going 
to be much more helpful.
How about we just make it clear that this page lists only C++ features 
that Clang has partial/full support for. When clang reaches a point 
where most of C++ is at least partially supported, we can add the 
missing stuff too to complete the picture.
